Like everyday it starts out with me reading my emails, answering questions and receiving ideas and feedback from all of you. And so many of you I have gotten to know and have had the joy of speaking to on a regular basis. I look forward to these conversations, sharing ideas, thoughts and just small talk. Now getting requests for a specific project is something I receive regularly and for me this is an awesome thing because it lets me know what my veiwing audience wants to see. This has become so important to me that I have created a poll on my website asking what you would like to see for a future project and this information allows me to create and provide better content for all of you.
My latest project video was a request, a garden planter box. The goal of this project was to build it small enough it could fit on a balcony or a small area in an apartment complex, yet big enough to grow a small garden. They asked if it could have an asian influence in apperance and if it could have removable trays for preplanting or for when the weather turned cold so they could be taken inside.
For me it's like being the little kid in the candy store, that feeling of excitement and that adrenaline rush I get from a project request. Only to be surpassed when the project is finished and then greeted by that big glowing smile of approval from the receiver, this is why I do what I do and every build is about it. The approval that I receive from all of you, the words of encouragement, the great ideas we share, the thoughtfullness, the kind words that seem to have no end and most of all the support I get from each and everyone of you. Thank you to everyone for supporting me, following me and believing in me and I look forward to another year of inspiration and fun with all of you.
